Stoughton Police Make Arrest in Webster Bank Robbery

A Brockton man was arrested in Walpole Monday evening for robbing Webster Bank in Stoughton earlier in the day.

A 30-year-old white male robbed Webster Bank on Washington St. in Stoughton Monday afternoon and then fled the scene, but was arrested in Walpole later Monday evening, Executive Officer Robert Devine said.

Nicholas Twomey, 30, of Homesite Rd. in Brockton, entered Webster Bank, located at the corner of Washington and Monk Streets, around 3 p.m. on June 11, passed a note to the teller, and made off with about $2,000 in cash, Devine said.

Twomey was caught on surveillance camera. He was wearing a long-sleeved yellow shirt and a Red Sox hat at the time. Devine said he was unarmed. The robbery did not result in any injuries.

Devine said Twomey got in the get away car, drove from Monk St. to Grove St., then from Grove St. to Pleasant St. to Prospect St. and then into Brockton.

While on Grove St., a dye pack in the bag of money exploded, Devine said. Twomey then discarded some of the money as a result.

With the suspect on the loose, Stoughton Police sent out an alert to area police departments, Devine said.

Twomey ended up in Walpole after he tried to exchange some of the ink-stained money at a supermarket on Route 1 in Norwood. Walpole Police detained Twomey after locating his vehicle near the intersection of Route 1 and Route 27, according to the Norwood Police log. Stoughton Police then arrested and transported Twomey from Walpole back to Stoughton around 7:30 p.m. on June 11.

He is charged with unarmed bank robbery, as well as other various offenses in Walpole, Devine said.
